. the woman at center of the firestorm facing more questions. today u.n. ambassador to the u.s. susan rice met with republican senators who harshly criticized her initial ex-plan nation about the attack that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. what senator lindsey graham said after the meeting. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before, that the 16th september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think, does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> dana bash following developments on capitol hill. before susan rice went before these republicans, senators, they seemed to be backing away from criticizing her. now it looks like in speaking with them, this is backfired. can you tell us what happened? >> reporter: that's right. i was told by a source familiar with this meeting that the reason why the senators backed off public comments, softened them, they did, susan rice requested a meeting and felt that was the most appropriate thing to do not keep pounding her be
decided that that administration official, u.n. ambassador susan rice, is someone she could not support for secretary of state if president obama nominates her for that job because susan rice chose to appear on those sunday shows at all, regardless of what she said there. >> i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of a contentious presidential election campaign by agreeing to go on the sunday shows to present the administration's position. >> seriously. they're no longer even complaining about what she said. they're complaining that she went on a sunday show. so, therefore, she can't be secretary of state. for senator susan collins, appearing on a sunday show is something a politician would do. she doesn't want somebody for secretary of state who would do something like that. be totally inappropriate for somebody behaving like a politician by going on a sunday show to get the secretary of state job. she says she would much prefer senator john kerry for that job. because, yeah, he's never been a po
took a wide range of questions. he launched a strong defense of u.n. ambassador susan rice whose been under fire from republicans for the administration's handling of the benghazi attack. >> she has done exemplarily work. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: for the first time, president obama weighed in on the scandal that cost david petraeus his job as cia director. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: tomorrow the president sits down with leaders from both parties at the white house. and their big topic, the fiscal cliff. rob, paula, back to you. >> a fly on that wall. the president takes a break today from the fiscal crisis ills to visit some storm damaged areas here in new york. the president will meet with residents and first responders during an afternoon visit. thousand of people on long island are still without power. now more than two weeks after sandy
suggested the attack began as a protest. >> why would susan rice not get our vote? i don't trust her. >> reporter: we put that to the president. senator graham said he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and to besmirch her reputation is outray outrageous. >> reporter: in a blistering response to that, senator graham issued a statement a short while ago, directly to the president, saying, quote, don't think for one minute that i don't hold you responsible. i think you failed as a commander in chief before, during and after the attack. in other words, diane, this battle is just beginning. >> first new battle of this re-elected term. thank you, jonathan karl. >>> and you heard the president mention general petraeus, engulfed in that scandal. we have a new picture tonight of paula broadwell. his biographer, standing in front of the window with cameras parked outside. i
.n. ambassador susan rice is the front-winner to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state despite some strong opposition from some republicans. the 47-year-old u.n. ambassador is a close confidante of president obama, a former rhodes scholar who served as an assistant secretary of state under president clinton. she came under fire from republicans for what she said five days after the attack in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans. here was race on "face the nation." >> we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned. >> reporter: that would later prove to be untrue, though the white house insisted rice was working off the c.i.a.'s best information at the time. several republicans on the senate foreign relations committee have suggested they might try to block her nomination. florida's marco rubio was noncommittal today. >> obviously she based those comments on directives or information she had and it's important to know who that directive came from and what exactly that information was. >> reporter: massachusetts senator
of your insights on this. susan rice is heading to capitol hill today to meet with some of her toughest republican critics and answer questions about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayott. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism as rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >>
first testified and briefed capitol hill and apparently after ambassador susan rice made those comments. >> that's why it's so significant, it also came after ambassador rice's appearance on the sunday shows, where she is now being grilled by john mccain and others. i'm talking to him in a few minutes. so it's very significant i think what general petraeus believed at the time. it does beg a belief, really, why would ambassador rice go on national television, having had a briefing we believe from the cia, which turned out to be flawed if the director of the cia right away knew this was an al qaeda affiliated group? >> yeah, you know, it's washington, isn't it. i mean, you know, the theory, what petraeus is expected to talk about is he had his talking points. he got them declassified, approved to go out there in public. when ambassador rice started talking from her talking points, this included other information that wasn't exactly what the cia thought might be really going on. i think some members of capitol hill have brought it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibl
any talking points at all to susan rice the u.s. ambassador. and, i'm sorry, the u.n. ambassador for the u.s. and says he almost knew immediately this was a terror attack. what he tells congress behind closed doors today should be interesting to shedding some very credible light on what happened there. he was in charge at the time. visited, recently, even after, this whole scandal was coming to light. so, fascinating to be a flay on that wall today should be interesting. >> he is reportedly very eager to disseminate information and discovery over in libya and to share the time line of events as well. >> indeed. we will stay on top of that. >>> fighting between israel and palestinian has come to a temporary halt. israeli officials agreed to stop the wave of air strikes on gaza while the egyptian prime minister visits. >>> there is hope that egypt's leader will be able to broker some sort of truce between hamas and israelis. earlier 100 missiles landed in gaza bringing the death toll there to 19. >>> a record settlement for the worst environmental disaster in u.s. history. bp will
't there an interagency decision to not use al qaeda in the unclassified talking points that susan rice was using on the morning shows. but amy, do you believe at all that the election results are playing a part in this washington drama? >> i don't think so. i think benghazi is such a serious scandal and debacle in terms of american foreign policy that everyone wants to get to the answer, including senator dianne feinstein, the democrat from california. as far as those talking points go, it is not at all clear where they were edited. what we do know apparently is that the original determination that al qaeda was involved, or al qaeda affiliated groups was sent out the front door to the cia and went through some sort of editing process, perhaps interagency, perhaps at the white house that still hasn't been answered. what we do know is if the white house wanted to provide the answers, they could have done it before the election and chose not to. let's not forget, of course, general petraeus and his whole personal scandal, debacle, that could also be professional. we still don't know the answers to
of the comments from ambassador susan rice at the united nations. listen. >> progress towards a just and lasting two-state solution cannot be made by pressing a green voting button here in this hall. nor does passing any resolution create a state where none indeed exists or change the reality on the ground. for this reason, today's vote should not be misconstrued by any as constituting eligibility for u.n. membership. >> is this the person you want as united states secretary of state? >> that's not definitely for me to say. it's the choice of the president of the united states subject to senate. those are the rules and procedures. >> what about john kerry? you met with john kerry. >> i also met with susan rice. i've known john kerry for many years. >> what were those meetings like? >> good. thorough, deep. yeah. someone who has been ob this issue for a long period of time. he visited the region quite often. >> you think kerry would make a good secretary of state? >> he's been -- whatever it is he did. and i have reason to believe that he would definitely perform exceptionally well in that positi
